    You are definitely the most well connected phone screener/entrepreneur/man among men. Your ego could use a shave though.
    No offense intended.

    Get moving on that career man.

    Hey Hooman
    I over heard you the other day saying you used to hang out at the Hillsdale mall during your youth….so curiosity got me and i’m wondering if you went to Hillsdale High School.
    Anytime you want to give a shout out to the school would be awesome and looking for any kind of contribution you can give to the school…..My daughter is a senior this year!

  • Deb Barr
